Note: Mary B. Carpenter of Lewisburg, W. Va., recorded this cemetery and furnishes names of some people buried here without markers:

Marcella "Sebe" (Taylor) Snider (w. of Emmet Jackson Snider & dau. of Geo. W. & Lydia Margaret (Taylor) Taylor).

Lora Lee (Taylor) Bower (w. of Guy H. Bower & dau. of Geo. W. & Lydia M. Taylor).

Elizabeth (Bonner) Collins (dau. of Amos & Elizabeth (Taylor) Bonner & w. of Benjamin J. Collins).

Mary Agnes (Saunders) Bower (w. of James Monroe Bower & dau. of John W. & Cynthia Ann (Wolverton) Saunders), b 6 Jul 1851 - d. 5 May 1907.

Robert Ervin Taylor, b. 14 Aug 1849 - d. 2 May 1902. (This is my grandfather; I find him listed as buried at Rhoda, so unless there is a family plot on Taylor property, or what was Taylor property at time of his death, he is certainly buried in the Taylor cemetery because the Rhoda Post Office was located just below the Taylor cemetery in 1902. - MBC)
